Recruiter wants my unvested RSU documents

Facebook blockr
Sep 19 17 Comments

Chase is going to make me an offer but their recruiters insist on having my unvested RSU documents so they can offer a buyout.

Given the curent stock market and the likelihood that my next refresher will be a big one, i want to decline again.

Any suggestions on how to best handle such situations? (I’m in the bay area while the recruiters are based in NYC.)

    They have no obligation to take your word for how many unvested RSUs you have if they are paying out your lost opportunity. Share the info.

    Also I don't really think of it as lost opportunity if they are giving you a new grant. Whether you stay at your current job or go to Chase, each company is offering incentives for your continued loyalty. If Chase is granting you shares, why should they also pay for the shares you forfeit at your previous job?

      They haven’t shared much so I don’t even know if they grant RSU as incentives.

      Asking salary is different than asking for proof of lost opportunity they are offsetting.

    Dont play games and just be straight up. Give them what docs they want and just tell them what you want in addition. Simple

      I’m not very confident but I heard someone got a very attractive package a couple months ago.

    Include a history of refreshers, amount and timing, along with the summary of unvested rsu.

      My last couple refreshers disappointed me and I don’t want anyone to use those numbers. Is this a common practice? I never encountered this before.

      They’re not going to do anything about your next refresher if you can’t indicate that it would be sizable and timely based on the history

      That’s the intention. They plan to move people there next year (after April but who knows if construction will be finished on time).

    Would you be willing to share the role and offer when you get it? I’m considering a few different firms and would like a reference point at Chase

    I've heard chase has pretty bad bureaucracy and seem pretty old school, I would much rather work at FB or another tech company.
